Quick Pickle Kit is a labor of love developed by Andrea Wasko and Meaghan Gilbert utilizing Andrea’s mother’s recipes that have been in their family for over 100 years.
Andrea grew up loving home-canned pickles. Once Andrea made her home in California, she looked forward to the pickled gifts her mother sent on holidays. However, her busy lifestyle rarely allowed her to devote days to her own canning.
Determined to enjoy great tasting pickles without the hassle of traditional canning methods, she conceived the idea for the Quick Pickle Kit. The Quick Pickle Kit is the perfect blend of nostalgic, flavorful recipes, with a pickling process that helps you make delicious pickles in a fraction of the time with minimal effort.
We are excited to share our Quick Pickle Kit process and timeless recipes with you. We hope that your family will enjoy them as much as our family has over the years.
